OH BOY! Dead Space 3 will have Kinect voice controls

Say stuff to do stuff

Yup, Dead Space 3 will have Kinect voice control options similar to Mass Effect 3. And like the co-op experience, just because the feature is there doesn't mean EA will be trying to stuff it down your throat. With that said, it's no secret that I'm not a fan of Kinect, but there is some merit to the voice system in regards to co-op.

Co-op buddies will be able to quickly share ammo and health with each other without having to pull up the inventory menu by saying something like "share ammo." That right there will prove useful when you're surrounded by Necromorphs. The interface commands are forgettable though. Saying something like "quick heal" will have your character use a medkit, but these type of commands aren't exactly useful as it's WAY faster to just press the corresponding button on your controller.

Expect a couple of dozen voice commands you can shout at your TV based on what I saw during a recent hands-on. More importantly, there will be easter egg commands where saying certain cusswords will trigger stuff. And if you're like me, you're already cussing a f*ckton playing something as messed up as Dead Space.

Additionally, EA showed off another new feature in Dead Space 3 called the Scavenger Bot. It's this little tiny robot you can drop into the world that will scavenge for resources to craft stuff with. Every 10 minutes, the Scavenger Bot will return to a work bench so you'll have items waiting for you the next time you try to create something.

You can get several of these little robot helpers over the course of the game, and they appear to add on top of the items you'd find normally without their assistance. They do take up a slot where your weapons would go in past games, but that doesn't mean you're getting access to less weapons.

Only two slots are given for guns now, but with the new crafting system, each gun can feature two totally different and unique firing methods. Combine the chainsaw gun with a rocket launcher? Sure, why not?! Yes, you're getting less slots but will still have the same amount of weapons in your inventory as in past games. 

We've seen Dead Space 3 a few times now, so I just focused on what was brand new from this latest look. For a more in-depth preview, follow these links to learn more about the co-op, other new additions, and the crafting system.
